Dominican Presidents of Haitian origin.

I am not the kind of person who’d take a story an redistribute it, but when I find some thing this good, I just do it.
So here goes:
“When the facts change, then my opinions will change.”

The antagonism which opposes the Dominican Republic to Haiti has never been able to break the bonds of ancestry who were enrolled in the annals of the history of these two peninsulas . They are initially underestimated by Dominican historians often take an oath of allegiance to the anti- Haitianism , an old separatist doctrine renewed and nourished by the vindictive government of Pedro Santana , Ulysses Heureaux , Raphael Trujillo, Joaquin Balaguer and even the polluted leftist Leonel Fernandez. These historians of the East rather want a name in the demonization of the Haitian presence in neighboring territory , describing the Haitian daily as subhuman . In this row of pens biased , we find the Frank Moya Pons, Roberto Cassa Bernardo Pichardo and Bernardo Vega , to name one iota.

In contrast, some Haitian historians , inflated egos and perhaps for reasons of size or ignorance , have avoided writing this beautiful piece of history. These Haitian writers recount only border skirmishes as Campaign Eastern heinous massacre of October 1937 and disputes over fences adjoining the two republics. Indeed , only the dark side of the history of the island is known. These are destructive ideals that survived the years. While nothing in the world can overcome this historical truth : four presidents are Dominicans of Haitian origin.
